These eggs are a little...different. More about them later.
Dinner was chicken meatballs with sweet potato, zucchini, and summer squash pasta. My sister was inspired by the sweet potato pasta made by Richard Blais on Top Chef All-Stars. The vegetables are peeled very thin and then cooked very quickly in a skillet with just a little liquid. Delicious!
Almond cupcake frosted with sweetened whipped cream and garnished with chocolate-covered almond.
I'm not sure what kind of plant this is exactly. Isn't it beautiful? My mom brought it over for us for Easter.
The aftermath of the cascarones! I had heard of these confetti-filled eggs before and was thrilled to find some at the local Walgreens for only three bucks. I had read that people often crack them over each other's heads to break them open. Unfortunately, these were quite a bit harder than I had imagined and I just ended up hitting my sister in the head with an egg; it didn't even bust open! I think it's because both the inside and outside were painted, which made them a little too...sturdy...for cracking over heads! If I make them at home at some point then I'll just paint the outside.
